I need safe disinfection for my garden – what can I use?
ESOL™ for Gardens is an effective, safe and fast acting sanitiser for a number of gardening jobs
This sanitiser is electrolysed water made with only salt, water and electricity so it is not harmful to you, your plants, your pets or their environment.
What can I use ESOL™ for Gardens for?
- Keep water butts free of bacteria
- Safely cleans greenhouses and polly tunnels
- Disinfect bird houses, baths and feeders
- Kills disease in planting trays
- Effective disinfection between seasons
- Kills fungus and blight
- Disinfect tools and equipment
- Harvested fruit and vegetables
- 100% biodegradable
General purpose sanitisation of facilities and equipment: wash facilities and equipment as normal to remove dirt and organic material and then spray the surface with ‘ESOL for Gardens’.
A 10 second contact time is sufficient to ensure disinfection.
What bacteria can ESOL™ kill?
ESOL™ is capable of killing a large range of bacteria within the gardening environment including fungus, mould and erradicating potato blight (late blight)
How does ESOL™ (electrolysed water) work?
We know what you’re thinking; how can a safe, non-toxic product be effective at killing germs; here comes the science;
Our ESOL™ Generators split a very weak saline solution entering the ESOL™ core into positively and negatively charged solutions. The negative ionic solution contains a mix of relatively short lived oxidant species and this is what we refer to as ESOL™.
How does ESOL™ disinfect?
ESOL™ creates an environment outside the working range of important microbial processes, including energy-generating mechanisms. Pathogens will come into contact with powerful oxidants which will sequester electrons from microbial structural compounds, causing the rupturing of biochemical bonds and subsequent loss of function. This is often described as an ‘oxidative stress’.
What surfaces should be avoided?
Electrolysed water can speed up the corrision of certain materials:
Avoid using on these surfaces.
